Historian's Note Salve reader! My name is Olivia Patel, and welcome to my journey through the past year in the WJCL! For this year's theme I decided to go with something that could relate to everything I would be presenting, and I thought what better than the zodiac signs! Zodiac signs, having Greek roots and relatable traits, were assigned to each section to really personify the events that occurred in the photographs and the story the scrapbook is trying to tell. So, while reading the scrapbook, it would be helpful to take note of the connections that have been made between the events in the photos and the traits of the signs. Enjoy the WJCL version of 2019-2020! Olivia Patel, WJCL Historian

What does the sign mean? Scorpio is the zodiac sign of strength and power when it comes to bearing the pressures of fire, or in this case, the WJCL. The zodiac sign scorpio relates to the WJCL Board because each and every one of the board members works together to create a well running WJCL.

Aries represents one's need to project their personality onto others. Aries also like to be #1. This compares to what takes place at Spirit during National Convention. Delegates from all around the country raise their voices in order to express "vox populi" or "the voice of the people", in hope to place first.

Sagittarius represents the idea of aiming for high goals and having fun. The bow and arrow symbol itself can be drawn back to ancient Roman sport. Players in Ludi typically don't play the sports they participate in for serious competition, but more for the camaraderie of it.

What does the sign mean? Libra represents a fair and unselfish nature, which are two characteristics a great certamen player must possess in order to be sucessful. By not being selfish, a player can allow for a greater chance of sucess in the game by allowing a teammate to answer the question.

Toga Dinner

What does the sign mean? Pisces is a sign that has a hidden enjoyment for food and good conversation, more so than the other signs. They are all about a sociable meal full of great food and spending time with friends and family. This most closely relates to the cena at state convention, where people from all around the state gather for a big meal together.

That's Entertainment!

Luther Prep's band

This year was the WJCL's first ever That's Entertainment, modeled after Nationals. Since it was the first year, only one school participated; however, the officers also put on a skit!


What does the sign mean? Gemini twins are known for the expressive nature of their many talents. Luther Prep's band sure showed the audience an excellent display of their ability to get up on the state and express themselves in a way of which everyone could enjoy. The officers also expressed their different personalities through the characters they played in their skit "Chopped".

Quarantine - Latin Edition

Board Meetings Virgo

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the officers have been unable to meet in person since March; however, they have been meeting virtally via Zoom! This is how the officers have been having their monthly board meetings.

What does the sign mean? The zodiac symbol Virgo, although commenly viewed as an introvert, is described to have great problem solving skills. This directly reflects on the board member's ability to adapt to online meetings instead of in person meetings to get things done within the board. This ability to adapt to Zoom calls shows the qualities of a Virgo.

What does the sign mean? Capricorn traits can vary between anywhere from dependant and connected to cunning and hard working. Since this is the most broad of the zodiac signs, it fits the many characteristics each chapter has to offer to the WJCL. No chapter is the same, and it is better that way.Â
